Car on 93 south is all a-flame; for motorists stuck, that's a shame

UPDATE, 10:31 a.m. State Police report the road is open again.

State Police reported a car-b-q around 9:40 a.m. on I-93 south at Furnace Brook. All lanes were shut to let the Quincy FD do its thing.

Ed. note: Rhyming headline because I had to get it out of my system, I'll try not to do that again, at least not for highway fires.

Blame the weather?

Freeze/thaw cycles can crack things - including connectors, hoses, wiring harnesses. Salt spray can lead to corrosion and short circuits.
